Fort Worth Rail Market

Fort Worth Rail MarketThe Fort Worth Rail Market, located adjacent to the Intermodal Transportation Center in Downtown Fort Worth, is an excellent example of the adaptive reuse of a historic building to add vitality to a somewhat neglected area. Through a public private partnership between Downtown Fort Worth, Inc., the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T), and the City of Fort Worth, the long-vacant Santa Fe Northern Warehouse was redeveloped into a public market offering a variety of products to Trinity Railway Express commuters and others. 

As the Awards Jury noted, the Fort Worth Rail Market is an "exceptional reuse of a building, tying market, downtown, transit and entertainment in one venue with easy access." The Rail Market will likely serve as a driver for additional investment in the area and lead to redevelopment of other historic buildings and underutilized properties into residential, entertainment, retail and office uses.
